Seven Mile Beach – Gerroa

Seven Mile Beach - Gerroa

New South Wales, South Coast

This is one of the best learn to surf spots on Australia's south eastern coastline. Very protected from north winds and swell, the waves here are great for practising catching whitewater waves or catching soft green waves that roll a long way until they reach the shore. Find an empty spot along this long beach and enjoy.

Wave Type
The super broad sandbar slopes gradually into the sea, making the waves spill slowly and much more softly than at most other spots. The evenness of the sandbar can cause the waves to close out, albeit slowly, so beginner surfers wanting to practise catching green waves and turn before the wave breaks will still have success when the waves are small. Even when the waves are big, catching whitewater waves is still very possible due to the broadness of the sandbar.

Beginner surfers will find the safest and easiest surfing conditions in the sheltered northern section of the beach during big north to east swells. During small swells, this northern corner is very sheltered and often flat with bigger waves found down the beach. Watch out for the rip currents that are more present down the beach, especially during and after big surf. Head south to Culburra and Currarong Beaches for smaller and smoother waves during big south swells and strong south winds.

Good Wind Direction
Best on North East to West winds.

Good Swell Direction For Fun Beginner Waves
Big North to East swells to moderate South East to South swells.

Rocks, Rip Currents and Marine life.

Have fun surfing Seven Mile Beach by practising surfing etiquette and surf safety.

Park at the northern corner or at various points behind the beach.

Lifeguard Patrolled
Patrolled daily during the summer school holidays (mid December to the end of January) - always swim between the red and yellow flags.

Beginners & kids are best to surf at beaches when Lifeguards are on patrol or with a friend who has decades of surfing experience.

Located at the northern corner of the beach on Riverleigh Avenue.

Closest Shops
Seahaven Café is located on the headland, there's a kiosk at the holiday park south of the bridge or head back to Gerringong or Kiama for more shops.

The sheltered northern corner offers excellent protection from strong north winds and big north to east swells. Thanks to the very broad sandbar, surfing in the whitewater is also possible on big south swells.
